Lecture on colonisation of Bermuda’
Historian Clarence Maxwell will deliver a lecture on the “African colonisation” of Bermuda.
Bermuda College will host “Before the Akaniba; the African colonisation of Bermuda 1616-1680” on March 8 in the Blue Room, from 5.30pm to 8pm.
The College said African colonisation of Bermuda during the 17th century played a significant role in the island’s success and sustainability.
It said: “Enslaved Africans satisfied the need for specialised labour such as pearl diving and agriculture, staving off starvation and, through that expertise, provided both sustainability to the islands.”
The lecture will be presented by the BC Journal: Voices in Education Committee.
